    Betty Crew 

Annalee Call

Played By: Winona Ryder

"You're a thing, a construct. They grew you in a fucking lab."

The newest member of the Betty crew, and has a secret mission to destroy Ripley before the Scientists can remove the queen embryo from her. Unbeknownst to everyone, Call is actually a second generation android: a robot designed and built by other robots.


Played By: Ron Perlman

"I'm not the mechanic here, Ironsides! I mostly just hurt people!"

A somewhat physically imposing, scarred member of the Betty crew. He is a dark-humored joker and has a short temper. He constantly argues with Vriess, who he teases for being handicapped. Frequently seen with a rather toxic liquor of his own concoction, the container of which conceals a pistol.
  • Anything That Moves: Invoked. While he claims to draw the line at automatons, Vriess thinks differently:
    "Yeah, like you never fucked a robot."
  • Fantastic Racism: Let's just say that when Call is revealed to be an android, he's not very polite about it.


Played By: Dominique Pinon

"Wanna check the chair?"

The chief engineer of the Betty. He is handicapped and uses a wheelchair- precisely what happened to him is unclear, but it is shown that he does not even register Alien blood on his leg-; he is able to hide a shotgun in various pieces upon his chair to avoid its detection.

Captain Frank Elgyn

Played By: Michael Wincott

"Hey, son, I'll give ya my authorization code. It's E-A, T-M, E."

The raspy-voiced captain of the Betty. Elgyn provides General Perez with kidnapped humans still in cryostasis for a large sum of cash. He was also romantically involved with Hillard.


Played By: Gary Dourdan

A muscular, dreadlocked mercenary amongst the Betty crew. Christie is first mate and second in command of the Betty, and carries two disposable guns attached to his wrists.
  • Guns Akimbo: Wields dual "disposable" derringer type pistols, spring-loaded and attached to his arms.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: To save Vriess.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Initially comes off like a thug but turns out to be one of the nicest and most levelheaded characters in the film, becoming de facto leader, allowing Ripley to join them despite Call's protests, humoring Di Stephano when asked about his weapons and more prominently carrying Vriess when they have to "ditch the chair".
  • Number Two: To Elgyn.

Sabra Hillard

Played By: Kim Flowers

The assistant pilot of the Betty and is the romantic partner of Elgyn.

    Auriga Crew 

Ripley 8

Played By: Sigourney Weaver

"It's a Queen. She'll breed. You'll die."

For tropes relating to the original Ellen Ripley, see the character page for the entire Alien series.
  • Came Back Wrong: Well, for one thing, now she also has acid for blood...
  • Cloning Blues: Averted; she is disturbingly indifferent about the whole being a clone thing.
  • Creepy Good: Her whole attitude is pretty creepy, especially the way she has more empathy for the aliens than the humans. As if this wasn't enough, she now shares the Alien's super-strenght and acidic blood. Yet, she does mean well, and helps the Betty Crew to get out alive.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When compared to the original Ripley, this one is notably more sarcastic and cynical (even though the original Ripley wasn't exactly naive), displaying a dark sense of humor and almost enjoying the irony of seeing what's happening onboard.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: If you consider her the same character than original Ripley. Considering she seems to share her memory, that would count.
  • Heroic BSOD: When she discovers the previous failed Ripley clones. She's so horrified that she ends up destroying the lab. She has a second one when she is forced to kill the Alien-human hybrid.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Is even more bitter and cynical than the original.
  • Mercy Kill: Her destruction of the lab full of Ripley clones.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Genuinely seemed sorry when she had to kill the Newborn.

General Martin Perez

Played By: Dan Hedaya

"Ellen Ripley died trying to wipe this species out. For all intents and purposes, she succeeded!"

The commanding military General of the medical research lab where Ripley is being cloned for the alien queen's resurrection.
  • Boom, Headshot: From a Xenomorph's second head no less, and the man doesn't notice it until he checked the back of his head.

Dr. Mason Wren

Played By: J.E. Freeman

One of the five scientists who worked on resurrecting the alien queen.

Dr. Jonathan Gediman

Played By: Brad Dourif

"You are... a beautiful, beautiful, butterfly."

One of five scientists who perform the operation on the Ripley clone to retrieve the queen embryo.

Vincent DiStephano

Played By: Raymond Cruz

"Begging your pardon, sir, but FUCK YOU!"

Dr. Carolyn Williamson

Played By: Carolyn Campbell

  • Big "NO!": When Gediman gets pulled under by an alien.

Larry Purvis

Played By: Leland Orser

"What's in-fucking-side me?"

One of the many test subjects who were kidnapped for experimentation and impregnated.
